Back Yard Daffodils

It has been such a treat to be out taking
photographs after being holed up in the house through the long,
bitterly cold winter here in Connecticut.

These daffodils are in my back yard. I love the intense orange ruffled center with yellow around the center's base.  Of course these flowers point downward so I had to get really low for this shot.

Tulip Tree

Taking photos in the spring is like being given a fifty pound box of chocolates. You don't know which to choose first. Do I photograph the sun shining through the new growth on the coral bells, or the bluets blooming in the grass? How about the new leaves on the sassafras tree highlighted by the setting sun. Or maybe the tulips, daffodils or blooming trees. I have been admiring and photographing all of these things.  What has caught your attention the most?

This a tulip tree I photographed during a walk in Mansfield, CT.
